WIC is a federally funded program that each state administers.

  • If a woman knows she is pregnant she can come immediately to the program.
  • WIC offers family case management up to 1 year for children with well baby visits, checkups, and needed referrals provided.
  • WIC provides nutritional counseling, takes a diet history, and helps make nutritional goals for moms and children.
  • Moms can receive a voucher to receive nutritional food at the store.  There are food packages per month that include such items as 5 gal. milk, cereal, eggs, whole-wheat bread, juice, fresh or canned fruits or veggies, peanut butter, and dried beans.  This is for children over 1 year of age.
  • Children younger than one receive: babies - formula; 6mo olds - baby foods and cereals; moms are also encouraged to breast feed.
  • Also help with parenting: discipline, potty training, dental, and iron checks.

Charges:

Free.  Some Lead screening may have a fee if not under WIC.
